Rick Steves' Romantics' Europe
A dreamy ride through less-traveled destinations airing in March
City, State – This March, join European travel expert Rick Steves for an adventure through some of Europe's less-traveled destinations: Barcelona, France's Dordogne River Valley, and the Czech Republic...all vibrant with romantic charms.
In this two-hour, public television travel special on KXXX, Steves will begin in Barcelona where we'll be inspired by the creative spirit of its Catalan culture, including the fun-loving art of Gaudí, Picasso, and Salvador Dalí.
In France's Dordogne River Valley, we'll canoe past dramatic castles, marvel at prehistoric cave paintings, and savor the region's prized cuisine—foie gras.
Finally, in the Czech Republic, we'll soak in a peat bath, do some river rafting, dance to a Gypsy band in a pub, and admire its finest Art Nouveau masterpieces.
Stow away with public television's favorite tour guide to enjoy the romantic and quirky charms of Spain, France, and the Czech Republic. In addition, Rick will be with viewers during the pledge event to celebrate all the quality public television programming made possible by their generous support.
Rick Steves' film crew consists of Steves, producer Simon Griffith, cameraman Karel Bauer, and editor Steve Cammarano. The special is produced by Back Door Productions based at Rick Steves' Europe Through The Back Door Inc., presented by Oregon Public Broadcasting, and distributed through American Public Television at no cost to public television stations nationwide.
